Abstract:


The idea behind quantum computing is to use quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform data processing. However, applying these quantum concepts to macroscopic devices like computers is an enormous challenge for information scientists and physicists alike. What does it make so hard? Well, scientists have to find a material in which they are able to store and manipulate quantum bits (qubits). Since quantum states are very fickle and thus hard to abide, the most important task is to find materials in which qubits can be stored for a sufficient long time. Surprisingly they found these properties in diamond.


This talk is an entertaining «tour de force» including a brief introduction to the fascinating yet strange theories of quantum physics, the concepts of using these in quantum computing and the latest results on qubits in devices made out of diamond. Moreover this presentation is given by a physicist who has been working on diamond for various other applications for years - who suddenly realized that he might have the material for the next IT revolution right in his lab.


If you want to learn about the machines that might solve difficult problems in the coming years (such as intensive computations in astronomy, physics, and chemistry – or even decrypting your passwords) and how you can actually make your own diamonds from methane, hydrogen and a microwave source – this talk is for you!
